Stephen Kearney says Warriors' ownership uncertainty hampering player recruitment

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney says that the ongoing uncertainty around the club's ownership has seriously affected his side's ability to bring in new players.

The Warriors have struggled in 2017, just one loss away from setting a new record for most consecutive losses, with many fans and commentators urging wide scale changes among the playing staff.

Meanwhile there is continued upheaval off the field, with majority owner Eric Watson wanting to sell his stake in the club.

Kearney though, insists that new arrivals are imminent.

"We should be getting some news over the next week or so," he said.

"There was a bit of a pause (for) a couple of weeks, when someone was potentially looking to buy the club."

"We've managed to get that sorted and hopefully we've got a couple of announcements in the next week or so."

'If it's best for the team' – Roger Tuivasa-Sheck unsure over future as Warriors captain

Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has cast doubts over his future as leader of the side, after presiding over one of the most disastrous NRL seasons in the club's history.

The 22-21 defeat to the Manly Sea Eagles saw the Warriors equal their worst ever losing streak with eight straight defeats, meaning Sunday's clash with the Wests Tigers now looms as a vital fixture for the club to avoid the embarrassment of setting a new record altogether. 

Speaking to media today, Tuivasa-Sheck said that his own form has suffered while in charge of the side, with the added responsibility hampering his on field ability.

"At times I've had my performance itself being below par," he said.

"I've been worrying about other players, and at other times telling myself I have to lead this group."

Tuivasa-Sheck also kept his cards close to his chest with suggestions he'll be removed from the job next season.

"If it's best for the team, that's what I keep saying."
